Project: Ovarian tissue cryopreservation and transplantation for fertility preservation in young female cancer patients

project duration
01-OCT-06 – 31-DEC-10
Cryopreserved human ovarian tissues will be xenografted into SCID mice, stimulated with gonadotrophins and evaluated by histo-morphological examinations. Other grafts will be punctured to obtain oocytes to submit for in-vitro fertilization to evaluate success of the technique. Developed embryos will be evaluated for any contamination with cancer cells or genetic abnormatilies. Protocol for clinical trials will be set up.
